    Yay, you! Can't wait to hear how it goes.


    Acquired a full Stones concert video from 1989 in Atlanta. Clapton guests on Little Red Rooster (which was on the Flashpoint album) and sticks around for John Lee Hooker's guest spot too.

    Jagger's face when he takes back the spotlight after Clapton's solo on Rooster is priceless.

    Great video jp. Priceless is right about Jagger expression is hilarious! Watched it a couple times. lol

    But I still love how you can just see Clapton feeling his music. *sigh*

    Yeah, when I woke up this morning, I thought, "Hey, it started about an hour ago. I should check for updates." When I saw there weren't any, I thought, "Maybe it just takes some time." Guess not.

    It's interesting that only WheresEric says anything about live coverage and not the Crossroads site itself.

    Concert review from the Chicago Tribune.
    In the months leading up to his Crossroads Guitar Festival on Saturday at Toyota Park in south suburban Bridgeview, Eric Clapton had been saying it would be his last.

    But deep into Saturday?s 11-hour showcase for some of his ax-wielding mentors, peers and disciples, a smiling Clapton changed his tune.

    ?This was going to be the last one,? he said, ?but I don?t think it will be. ? We?re gonna have to do it again."

    Yay, maybe I'll be able to go to the 2013 festival! ...Probably not, but I can hope.


    I was disappointed to see that Clapton and Winwood only played stuff from their tour. I would've like to have seen something, at least on the level of "Isn't It A Pity?" from the '07 festival.

    Still absolutely nothing on the website (or on Where's Eric). Ridiculous.

    Here we go, more from the Chicago Tribune;

    Enjoy your show tomorrow Frieda!

    Regarding the Crossroads festival, sounds like BB King was rambling on incoherently for much of his set, pity seeing his speech last time round was really touching. I wonder why they had him on so late, though, that can play havoc with someone of that age who's taking medication and who's brain may not be as sharp as it once was? :(

    Wow, amazing concert! [face_love]

    Roger Daltrey was great and played so well to the crowd. Can't help but chuckle at him talking about being the warm up.

    Clapton was simply... Clapton. Never thought I'd get to hear Badge live, my favorite Cream song and it had me in tears to sing along with him. I Shot The Sheriff near rocked the house down and Wonderful Tonight had us mesmerized. So many fantastic songs, and just getting the chance to hear him play... I really felt a part of something magical.

    Disappointed that the encore was only one song, though it was Crossroads and I really can't complain when he played for an hour and a half.


    Only bad thing about the concert was sitting in front of 3 very drunk ladies who chose to chat loudly, above the music. Five minutes after explaining nicely how distracting they were, I had to tell them to ST*U!

    New album cover.

    [image=http://www.whereseric.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/imagecache_news_articles_images/article-images/Clapton%20-%20New%20Album%202010.jpg]

    Understated title. He's already had one album named "Eric Clapton". Looks like a compilation rather than a new studio album, maybe that's the plan - trick people into picking it up.

    And you'd think his stylist would have noticed his collar wasn't sitting properly before the photoshoot.




    Edit: Why the hell is all this text bolded?

    The news is so important that the boards automatically bolded it.


    Also, I doubt it's just a compilation; Complete Clapton was released only three years ago. It's probably the (double?) album of covers that Rolling Stone talked about a few months back.

    It's not a compilation, it's a new studio album.

    What I meant is that the cover reminds me of a compilation. Stern photo, black. Gold all caps CLAPTON title, etc.


    The news was so important the boards also bolded my sig. Nice.

    Ah, I see what you're saying. Yeah, he's always come up with original titles for his studio albums (except the very first solo one he did). Maybe he's getting lazy in his old age.

    I already pre-ordered the CD from Amazon. Glad to hear that it's good, though admittedly I rather like Reptile and Back Home.
